Recently, My Jewish Learning offered recommendations for a Jewish book for every age, from birth all the way to 120.
Now, along with the Jewish Book Council, we invite you to discuss our literary picks — and the merits of making such a list — with an all-star group of Jewish authors, whose books appear among our recommendations. Please join:
– Eric Kimmel, beloved and award-winning author of the classic children’s book “Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins,” along with more than 150 other books.
– Naomi Ragen, international best-selling author of books that touch on the inner lives of religious women, including “Jephte’s Daughter” and the recent “An Observant Wife.”
– Peter Cole, renowned poet, poetry translator, and scholar, whose books include “The Poetry of Kabbalah: Mystical Verse from the Jewish Tradition” and “Sacred Trash: The Lost and Found World of the Cairo Geniza.”
Their conversation will be moderated by Ben Harris, Managing Editor of My Jewish Learning, and introduced by Naomi Firestone-Teeter, Executive Director of the Jewish Book Council.
